Powers: Astrid was a very skilled young telepath who could link her mind to another, read minds, erase memories, alter thoughts, cast illusions and shielding her mind and others from attack.

Her greatest asset however is the ability to “piggy back” and absorb the knowledge of those around her.


Astrid was born in England and had a happy life with both parents. Her life changed when her father died and her mother remarried and gave birth to her little sister. Immediately she became the outcast, her room was converted to a baby nursery and her parents pampered and spoiled her sister while she was always in the wrong. When her powers manifested she had enough and using her powers she cruelly took control of sister and had her kill her parents. Using her powers she made a life for herself and eventually arrived in New York for college. Here she met Emma Frost a fellow telepath, Astrid saw Emma as a student someone to mold and manipulate to her anti human way of thinking.

When Emma realized she was being manipulated the two fought and Emma the more powerful telepath prevailed. The strain left Astrid Catatonic. She is still in the hospital to this day.
